I was going through a divorce so I sold 3 acres of land and got screwed on tht but gave chase 16000 to catch my home up in commerce ga 2 months later they forclosed on it is tht legal
I agree with Mr. Douglas that we would need more specifics to determine whether or not the foreclosure was valid. Catching up two months before a foreclosure should have stopped them from foreclosing if that was the entire amount needed to catch up, but if you did not pay after that, it may have given them a reason to foreclose. However, being only two months behind at the time of foreclosure is not usual. Get all of your documents together and go and sit down with someone.See question

Check your security deed and promissory note. If they contain the standard language, there are specific events which would cause the loan to be considered in default, thereby triggering the right to start foreclosure proceedings. If you think this person is the type to push a foreclosure for one bounced payment, then you should 1) stop payment on the check you gave him (after first double checking that it did not get re-deposited); 2) Check the deed/note for late fee or bounced check fee information; 3) Send certified funds to him via certified mail, including all late fees and/or charges for bounced checks, for the payment which initially bounced. There should also be a provision stating that payments more than 30 days behind trigger default, so make sure to get it to him within that time period.See question

As this is coming down to a credit reporting issue, you may want to find a FCRA attorney on this site and go and take your documentation to them. You may first need to jump through a few hoops to send sufficient notice to both the creditor and the credit reporting agencies of their mistake, and inform them of your decision to pursue a FCRA claim against all of them. Then, if they don't correct their mistake, you can get attorney's fees in any lawsuit you file. If you did not get attorney's fees, and had to pay a lawyer with no hope of being reimbursed for these fees, it would be cheaper just to make an extra payment and bring the mortgage current in their eyes.See question
A judge in Fulton County Superior court ordered us to pay defendants an award of attorney"s fees. The defendants have not attempted to collect but have filed a garnishment In the magistrate court of Fulton County. It does not look like the d...
The do not have to have a Fi.Fa. issued as a prerequisite to garnishment. However, this is actually good for you, as the filing of the Fi.Fa. reports on your credit in a negative way. Depending on the attorney for the creditor, or the party doing the garnishment, you can usually call them to let them know that the money in a bank account is all social security, then send them something (such as a copy of the bank statement showing the direct deposits going in) proving that is the case. Most parties will then dismiss the garnishment without the need to traverse it or file the exemption forms.See question
My grandfather passed away in his will he left some things to me and my mother to share and share alike can my mother take the items away from me or do I need to make my wife power of attonrey and could my mother make my wife move out
If the will is valid and probated, no one should be able to take inherited property from you (with the exception of a creditor with a judgment). You can and probably should sign a power of attorney over to someone you trust to first find out what is going on with the probate of the will, then to take whatever actions are necessary to protect your interests. If this involves real estate, the wording of the will, along with who is named executor and what powers they have go a long way to determine who gets to enjoy the use of the real estate and how. The devil is in the details, so a reading of the will would be required to give you specific advice. Start with the power of attorney, then have your poa holder contact an attorney to help them get things straightened out.See question
My disabled brother was discharged from grady memorial hospital on 9/8/16. He was to be transported home by stretcher ambulance from the hospital. the ambulance company that was transporting him dropped him off at the entrance of the complex, and ...
I am really sorry to hear this is going on. The first thing you need to do is to get in touch with the police, if you have not already, then the local news stations so that they can put the word out to find him. Then, if you are his guardian, next of kin, etc. you should speak to an attorney about suing the transport company for negligence. Hopefully, the suit will not be worth much money because they find your brother and he is fine. However, if he is not fine, they could be liable for any injuries he has suffered as a result of their failure to follow protocol.See question
My girlfriend co signed on a auto loan with her ex boyfriend in Georgia. He has since had the car repoed and now is filing for bankruptcy and says that the car is flagged in the bankruptcy. Can we go take posseion of the car and refinance the car ...
Timing is going to be the key to what you can do. If he allowed the car to be repoed before the bankruptcy case, but the car had not been sold prior to his bankruptcy filing, then the car is still part of the bankruptcy and effected by the stay for a while. She may be able to act quickly and get something worked out with the finance company to bring it current and keep it, although this would need to be done in a way so as to remove his name. If they had already sold the vehicle prior to his bankruptcy filing, and if they sent a 10 day letter prior to selling it, then there may be a deficiency balance owed on the car. Since he is in bankruptcy, the only person they can go after is your girlfriend, and she may have to pay what is left owing on the car without having the car itself. If he allowed the car to be released from the bankruptcy case recently under a motion to lift the stay she, as the co-debtor, should have been notified of that motion. If she moves quickly, she may be able to work something out directly with the car dealer to finish paying the car off, but will need to do it in such a way that his name is taken off.
You should get in touch with a bankruptcy attorney asap, so that you can go over what has and has not been done to date, and find out what her options are.
THE MORTAGE COMPANY CANCELLED THE DEED IN NOV. 2014 & STILL FORECLOSED 7 MONTHS LATER.. PLS HELP ME
Whether or not a litigation attorney will take a case on a contingency depends heavily on the facts of the case and damages involved. Most of us would take a case under the right circumstances. You should call and go in to see a few listed on AVVO, go over all of the facts, and find out who is willing and able to handle a case of this sort.See question
My father elected his brother to be his POA. He has done nothing but go to an attorney and seek out false allegations against me. These and not true and my father is unaware what is going on. I have been served a summons for court. How do I prove ...
The first thing you need to do is answer that lawsuit, in writing, within the time stated on the summons. The way to prove the brother is wrong is to prove it in the case. You don't have to have an attorney, but you probably need one. If the brother is doing this in your father's name, and your father is in the middle being influenced one way or the other, it is best to put someone else in the forefront to prove your case both to your father and the court.See question
I won a judgement and now the defendant filed a motion to vacate.
Normally 30 days, but there may be a hearing notice or rule nisi for a date to hear the motion within that time period. Either way, get an answer filed at least a week prior to the deadline and/or hearing with specific reasons why the dismissal should not be vacated. There are some reasons for which a Judge will vacate, and others in which they will or should not. Note that these two do not always mean the same thing. Read the motion carefully and be prepared in your response and during any hearing to address the issues made in the motion.See question
